Hi, this probably sounds ridiculous to most of you, but if anyhow possible, I'd like to start "trading" with 500$, since I can't more right now. The main reason is to make myself familiar with the processes and give me an extra portion of motivation to observe the markets. I've started to reading books about it and I want to study the markets and the trading theory intensively during the coming 2 months (since have vacations). Especially I'm interested in commodities, I'm considering buying options, since it would give me the highest leverage, which I need with such a little capital. So how do I start? Can you recommend me any online-broker? I saw there are many online brokers which offer 30days trial accounts, can you recommend that or is there a rub in it? I'd really appreciate some advice!! Thanks a lot in advance!!
